My knitting basically sucks. I wish I was as good as my mom, she does it so fast and it comes out so regular. I have to keep on trying. I've got a whole bunch of ideas in my head with patterns and designs for scarves, but I'm too lazy to try it.

The bad thing about knitting is that it takes so long

I love knitting! I do both crochet and knitting, and although crocheting is faster, with knitting you get fabulous results. I plan to make a pair of legwarmers, a beanie, and other easy things (already made 3 scarves for friends).

A book or set, that I highly recommended is called "I taught myself to Crochet". It comes with 6 crochet needles, an afghan hook yarn needles, and other things. There is also a book called " I taught myself Knitting", which comes with 2 knitting needles, yarn needles, stitch markers, etc. I bought one for my friend from the Michael's Arts and Crafts store, and she loves it. I recommend those 2 books because the pictures are clear, and easy to understand. If you have problems crocheting, I would probably check out classes at Jo-Ann's or Michaels, or even your local yarn shop.

I just taught myself to knit just right after the holidays by buying several books. I do know what you mean by having someone show you. I called up a friend of mine who knows how to knit, and she corrected some of the things that I was doing wrong.

So you know what gave me my urge to knit? This website...: http://www.ceciliadebucourt.com. Click on scarves, poncho, shawls... they are all soo pretty! The best part knowing how to knit or crochet is making one of a kind items.
Anyhow, good luck to you!

I knitted this hat yesterday and I had such fun doing it! Got a couple of blisters though, I did the whole thing in one sitting. I do love rainy Sunday afternoons!
